romney's faith a issue in the race. the best example from harry reid like governor romney is a mormon. he's coming to a state where there is a lot of members of the lds-church and thigh understand he is not the face was mormonism. does harry think he is? my question is why does the republican nom no have such opposition. joining me is a congressman who is also a mormon. and that's what we do on a saturday. watch our kids play football. you are in a congressman in the reelection campaign. and i admire you got your priorities straight and out there in the football game with your son. there is more to life than politics and god bless you for that. >> thank you. >> i want to talk about to me ridiculous attacks on mitt romney and his faith for no less than harry reid who is a member of the same church. does this surprise and you how do you as a fellow mormon respond to that? >> it surprises me a lot. harry reid said a lot of things. i glupe las vegas and know his family. his reputation many years in las vegas was that he was a moderate democrat and could work with both sides of the aisle . onc
making mitt romney's faith is issue in the race. the best example last week from harry reid who, like governor romney, is a mormon and he he's come to go a state where there's a lot of members of the lds church and they understand he's not the face of mormonism, end quote. i wonder, does harry think he is? my question, why is the republican nominee's faith such a sore topic with his opposition? joining me is idaho congressman raul labrador also a mormon and i think he's at his son's football game, is that right, congressman? >> that's what we mormons do on a saturday morning, watch our kids play football. >> you're a congressman in the middle of a reelection campaign. i want to say i admire the fact that you have your priorities straight with your son at his football game and we need more in politics there's more to life than politics, god bless you for that. [applause] >> i want to talk to you about, to me, ridiculous attacks on mitt romney and his faith, from no less than harry reid who is a member of the same church. does this surprise you, congressman? and how do you, as a fellow
there is no budget. we can't get a budget here because senator harry reid doesn't want that to happen. that is where there is a lot of tie up. as a rin governor in a very democratic state of massachusetts he got things passed. >> he did. it's a particularly effective discussion for him to develop because as you know and you and i had this discussion most americans want to see things get done of they want to see problems solved and what mitt rom fee has done is fix things. and this is to work as cross the line. he's had to do that when running lirp olympics so that is something american people want to hear. i would be willing to bet if you looked at focus groups and polls during that that part of the debate that probably scored off the charts. it's a theme he needs to develop within the remaining days of the campaign. >> any thoughts looking ahead to the debate on foreign policy? it's not something governor romney has been having a lot of experience in. and any thought on that one? >> well, there is a target rich environment. the president has a dismal record there. tonight talking about domestic pol
was effectively a referendum on obamacare. and yet this president and nancy pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- to do what been taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government mand
for mitt romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? i think the same for president obama. i think republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected. hold allhink he could the republicans against an obama version of a budget deal. i think that have more leverage over members are around campaign finance issues and other things. i think obama -- even if the democrats don't control all of congress, he would have some leverage to go around leadership. people say bipartisanship, but there are two forms of bipartisanship. one is the leadership negotiant and the other is -- the premise of both of those is, there has to be personal relationships to develop before that can occur. the ambassador pointed out that governor romney will have those talents. i think president obama knows he has them, he will just have to now demonstrate the more. >> so the reality is this, we are a few short weeks away from the real work starting. be a moment ofl real clarity after the election. we will all wake up the next morning and some will be happy and some will be sad. then t
think he is to sit down with harry reid or does he think he has to go sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight other, and i think the same for president obama. i think, i think republicans are underestimate how strong obama will be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner if he is a 15 vote margin and as i don't think he can hold all the republicans against an obama version, for example, but they're still in of moderate republicans. the leadership is stronger than it used to be. i think they have more leverage over mbs, partly because of campaign finance issues and other things. but having said that, i think obama going to some lamar alexander's of the world, there are some the covens in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go around leadership is leadership -- that was the case of boehner i suspect. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with obama in 2013 is romney lost. people said bipartisanship there are two forms of abortion she. one is leadership negotiation, the other is -- [inaudible] spent with
to help elect mittens. >> i want to hear what harry reid has to say about that. >> stephanie: harry reid is already kind of skinny. >> i don't think i can think of a fat mormon. >> pretty sure that any kind of indulgence like that is some kind of sin. upsets american jesus or something. >> stephanie: american jesus. >> i love you rude pundit. oh, my god. >> stephanie: all right honey, we'll see you next week. great stuff as always. bye, sweetheart. american jesus. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] forget that he was a mideastern jew. okay. american kick ass jesus. that's what we believe in. >> rambo of nazareth. >> stephanie: rambo jesus. wow. did you see this one speaking of bad romney surrogates? john bolton. he harshly criticized the obama administration's response to libya this month calling the u.s. response limp-wristed. [ buzzer ] a homophobic slur. >> great. >> stephanie: hal sparks pointed out in seattle john bolton's -- when he gets excited, his mustache goes woo! crazy mustache that he has. >>
together and harry reid hasn't passed one. socce so, i think with the debate, that paul ryan is more prepared than the administration. >> jamie: doug, what impact does the jobs report of the last week. i've heard it interpreted 42 different ways, for democrats, how can they use it and what do they need to overcome in the latest numbers? >> at the very least, jamie, the jobs report says that the argument that mitt romney was making about the economy and president obama has to be at least some point attenuated, meaning that bottom line, with unemployment going below 8% for the first time since the start of the administration in '09, the obama administration can make the case that some of their policies have produced some results. given the debate results on tuesday night, this is a potential life saver, if not a game changer for president obama. >> jamie: i suppose it has to continue and. >> yeah. >> jamie: let me ask you, angela, what's the important number, that it's below 8 or that 23 million people are out of work? >> exactly. 23 million people are still out of work, and you have 4
, harry reid -- i work for the people of massachusetts. i am named the least partisan senator and united states senate. >> it is striking the youth support governor running for president, i assume. >> as i said, when it comes to dealing with the economic issues, absolutely. >> you would be a reliable ally? >> it depends on with the issue is. >> on his economic plan. you said there's no one better. >> i also would like to read the bill. because i do. a lot of people to not to read the bills. i want to vote. i am a reliable vote for the bill. that is evidenced by my voting record. >> it is striking that we look to your campaign ads, is president obama that you see touting your work. we could not find any instance with you with governor romney having made any campaign appearances with him. there is an appearance york distancing yourself from governor romney to appeal to voters, specifically here in massachusetts. being " -- being too close to him may be a problem. [applause] >> as you know, in the second- most bipartisan member. i take pride in that. i was also proud to stand with him when
. that being said, it's amazing how much flack he's getting when harry reid made a similar comment about a presidential candidate saying that he had not paid his taxes. so of course i'm referring to governor romney. he said i have absolutely no proof of it but everyone took it as the gospel because it was senator reid saying it. so i think there's a double standard there. [ overlapping speakers ] >> the fact of the matter he's never released his taxes. he had an opportunity to put the real information out there. >> senator reid said he had no proof that this was the case. that's what he said. [ overlapping speakers ] >> i'm saying here's the point. jack welch said he didn't have the resources. he had no proof, either. and i'm saying it's equally irresponsible for him to say it just as it was irresponsible for harry reid to say it. >> one second. morris, i'll get you on. molly, folks from the romney camp, are they publicly staying above the fray on this matter but privately are they not doing anything to discourage this talk? >> i don't think this makes romney look good at all to have thi
, we have about 30 seconds. >> nancy pelosi and harry reid. harry hopes to stay in majority, nancy wants to be leader. she was on wolf blitzer's show yesterday. i hope they're not leaders, but you cannot govern through half truths, innuendo and half-baked charges. harry reid stood in the well of the senate and charged that mitt romney had not paid taxes for ten years. demonstrably false. and nancy pelosi said when security in libya came up, she threw an innuendo that the congress didn't give all the money they asked for. another grenade tossed in the middle. you cannot govern through half truth and innuendo. that's what harry reid and nancy pelosi seem to major on. >> there we got it. that's our panel. that's our unsolicited advice for the afternoon. thanks very much for being with us. we look forward to the debate tonight. >>> margaret, thanks very much. ahead we're going to hear from two of the top advocates for mitt romney and barack obama setting the stage for tonight's presidential debate. and mitt romney has no backer as passionate about his potential than his wife, ann. just
be an interesting question for romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? or to get to sit with mark warner another senate. and i think the same for president obama. i think republicans have a say are underestimating how strong obama would be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner can hold up is the 15th of march. i don't think he can hold all the republicans. they are stronger than it used to be. a figure of more leverage present because of campaign finance issues and other things, but having said that, obama going to the senate and there are some equivalents in the house. even if the democrats don't control all of congress, you would have leverage to go around leadership. in the case of boehner, suspect he would mind. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with a bomb and 2013 if romney has lost. but i think people say bipartisanship come up with various leadership negotiation. the other is picking off the members against the wishes of leadership. >> the premise of both of those is there has to be personal relationships. the ambassador pointed out well that governor romn
about the majority in the senate, harry reid is majority leader. what happens there wr? i think that becomes really big in that race. frankly, i think that anybody else would have been a candidate that clearly would have won, and todd very well may win. he is on a ticket at a time when people are looking at a senate that's not doing its work, and the only way to change the senate is to change the majority. >> so you are going to sell it as a party race as opposed to the individual of congressman akin? >> i think it becomes a party race in our state and lots of other places as well as people look at these senate races, and i'm not -- i think they look at them to a great extent independently of whatever has happened in the presidential race, but i think the presidential race is going to be decided by the economy and the economy is not where people want it to be. >> we have a great candidate in missouri named jay nixon. he will be re-elected because he focuses on jobs. >> you are already holding that seat, though. it's the ones you might lose that are worrisome. >> akin is going to
save harry reid in 2010. everyone knows about that. i think the republicans have something to worry about here in nevada with that voter registration machine. the republicans obviously have a better team on the ground than in 2010. that's a low bar to get over. but i think they still have their work cut out. they're behind now by 6% statewide in voter registration. more than a hundred thousand voters in democratic clark county. that is very difficult to overcome when you're going to have an 80% turnout and a lot of partisan voting by the partisans. >> john, great to see you this morning. thank you. >> thanks, thomas. >>> here's a look at some of the stories topping the news right now for you. police in florida still haven't released the names of two people killing in a shooting at the vfw post just outside of orlando. a charity motorcycle ride was about to kick off when a gunman opened fire on the riders who were sitting down to breakfast. the third person was critically injured. >>> ten years after one of the killing sprees in history, lee boyd malvo is expressing regret for the cr

be an interesting tactical question for romney does he have to sit down with harry reid or sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight others and the same for president obama. i think the republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected and i do not believe that john boehner can hold if he has a margin in the house i don't think that he can hold off the republicans against dan obama version of the deal. the believes are stronger than the used to be. i think that we have more leverage over members in the campaign finance issues and other things but i think obama going to the lamar alexander in the senate and there are some equivalence in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go round the leadership and i suspect he wouldn't mind. he would feel that he is obliged to deal with him in 2013 if romney has lost but people see bipartisanship when it's a leadership negotiation and the other is picking off against the wishes of leadership but the premise on both of those is the rest of the personal relationship
attacked obama for doing too much to allow harry reid and nancy pelosi in the health care policy. sometimes romney says obama puts his plans out too much, and other times it's too much to negotiate with congress. romney's approach here has not been to not put out specifics on his policy. it's been to not put out the hard parts. i want it to cut the budget by $7 trillion or taxes by $5 trillion, but he doesn't tell you the details. am i surprised that led to a win for him? not really. i don't think last night of a trick. romney came and was a better debater. i don't think president obama walked into that debate or none straight demonstrated a clear vision of what he tried to get mitt romney to say, what points to pin him down on. romney won the debate. last night romney was more skilled. it doesn't change the policies. >> ezra, will the strategy work in the next two debates that heavy here? will this vague strategy work with foreign policy and the next debate beyond that? >> i think that the obama team is going to be more ready for what romney's able to bring to the debate than they were in

and to the republicans, and then you pull back because nancy pelosi and harry reid say don't do it, and now you're attacking republicans for proposing exactly what you proposed to them, and bob woodward has in a document! >> well, i have a healthy suspicion the moderator's probably read bob's book. and he's a great moderator. that's why i think this debate will be fascinating because i think there are some really good questions that you've just raised that will be raised tonight. >> and by the way, you can also ask mitt romney, mike barnicle, why is it that you're not proposing any reform for medicare and social security? >> you know, this discussion is actually kind of fascinating when you listen to it because it gets to, i think, one of the larger points about this election. if you put your ear to the ground, not in washington, not to politicians or other journalists, if you put your ear to the ground, you get the sense that this election really is about the american people asking one question of both candidates, where are you going to take us, and how much is it going to cost? and that's wha
that and i don't think that either harry reid or john boehner know how it's going to come out much less met ronnie or barack obama so i'm not going to pretend other than it is going to be an all-consuming thing that frankly i don't think the public is ready for or has any idea is coming. i think no matter who wins the election, what happens between now and the end of the year is -- i should say the election at the end of the year is going to be very traumatic for the country. >> let me refine this may and maybe do fred first and then maybe glen. sometimes, doing something to entitlement and domestic spending, it's pretty inevitable and those are things that the democrats are going to have to deal with and thinking about sort of the political consequences of that and on the republican side, there has got has got to be more revenue and defense is going to take some kind of a hit and that is going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. you know, fred if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer or glen if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell or john boeh
and end of the year and everything like that. and i don't think that either harry reid or john boehner have any idea how it will come out. much less mitt romney or barack obama. so i'm not going to pretend other then it is going to be an all-consuming mess frankly i don't think the public is ready for, has any idea coming and no matter who wins the election, what happens between now and end of the year is going to -- i should say election and end of the year is going to be very dramatic for the country. >> let me refine this and maybe do fred first and then glen. sometimes doing some things to entitlements and domestic spending is pretty inevitable and those are things a democrat will have to deal with and thinking about sort of the political consequences of that and on the republican side there's got to be more revenue. and defense is going to take some kind of a hit. that's going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. you know, fred, if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer or, glen, if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell or john boehner o
this so you -- you and i both have worked for senator harry reid. you were his communications director in the united states senate, and i did some work for the state party out in nevada. one of the races i'm starting to pay attention to again is our friend running for congress in las vegas. and i heard there is a lot of super pac money coming into that race. is nevada going to be a place where we think we'll hold on and pick up some steam? >> i think so. i think that shelley berkeley -- steve [ inaudible ] i have so much respect for, and i think that he is going to be the next congressman for that district. i also believe that shelley berkeley can win in nevada as well. i also believe that president obama is going to win that state, but i think one of the reasons why we're going to have to [ inaudible ] in nevada and jamal you saw it firsthand, the infrastructure that the senate majority leader harry reid has built up in that state since 2006 on. i mean part of that infrastructure that helped him win and retain his seat in 2010 and the republicans have nothing l
either harry reid nor john boehner know how it will come out, much less mitt romney or barack obama. i am not going to pretend, other than it is going to be an all- consuming mass, which i do not think the public is ready for or has any idea is coming. i think no matter who wins the election, what happens between now and the end of the year is going to be very traumatic for the country. >> let me refined this and maybe do fred first, and then glen. sometimes, and doing some things to entitlements -- sometimes, at doing things to implements and domestic spending, it is "inevitable-- pretty inevitable. those are things a democrat will have to deal with. what are the political consequences? and on the republican side, there has to be more revenue, and defense is going to take a hit. that is going to be ugly medicine for republicans. fred, if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi, or glen, if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell or eric cantor, and they are about to go in the room and get a lot of blood on their hands, and the ankle deep in blood -- and be ankle-deep in
. they are going to oppose it. harried and mitch mcconnell will pose -- harry reid and mitch mcconnell will oppose it. i am going to fight to change the rules of the filibuster. i am going to announce $1 trillion in savings by cutting back on congress' pensions and the executive branch. if we want to balance this budget, we have to lead with that kind of an effort. i expect to persuade the american people. >> here is the next question. >> i believe it is senator fisher. >> i will defer to you. >> senator kerrey, nebraska has the second lowest unemployment rate in the nation at 4%, but the bureau of labor statistics say the rate is twice that. can the people that were discouraged or working part- time. what can you do to improve that situation? >> first of all, there is nothing worse in life than wanting to work and not finding a job. in a lot of ways it is sort of outside of the reach of the experience of of both senator fisher and myself. this is a difficult thing for us to understand. so i would say first of all you have to keep production and agriculture healthy. i talked about ethanol earlier.
that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid felt was the best answer and drove it through. what we did in a legislature 87% democrat, we worked together. 200 legislators in my legislature, only two voted against the plan by the time we were finished over some differences. we didn't raise taxes. you raised them by a trillion dollars under obama care. we didn't cut medicare. of course we didn't have medicare. but we didn't cut medicare by $716 billion. we didn't put in place a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they're going to receive. we didn't also do something that i think a number of people across this country recognize, which is put people in a position where they're going to lose the insurance they had and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise, a study by mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are anticipating dropping people from coverage. so for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board, and for people losing their insuran
